CONSIGNING

We will select from your items what we believe our customers will buy. Sometimes there will be items we cannot accept. Please understand that our customers’ preferences, safety regulations & restrictions, and seasonal factors influence our selection criteria. We will input your items into our system then send you a report via email which will detail the items on consignment and their price. We will display your items for a period of 90 days. We may choose to shorten or extend an item’s consignment due to condition, season and demand for the item. When you consign your items you retain ownership of them until they are sold at which point we split a percentage of the sale price.

PRICING

We base our prices on supply and demand, the item's condition and what our research shows the market will bear. We will strive to get the best possible selling prices for you. We will establish the price of each item for you or you can let us know your desired price at the time of consignment. You can always let us know if you would like the price of any item adjusted. A $.50 handling charge will be added to all items priced at $10.00 or more and is paid by the buyer at the time of purchase. The selling price may be reduced by 20% after the first 4 weeks, and by 50% at the eight week point as deemed necessary. Additional markdowns depend on the condition, season and demand for the item. We will also hold normal periodic sales and any merchandise in stock is subject to these sales.

 

PAYMENT

You can choose to be paid in cash or to apply your proceeds as store credit. Consignors are compensated after items sell as follows:

  • All items you will receive 40% of the sales price if you wish to be paid in cash— or 50% if you wish to have your proceeds applied as store credit

 

UNSOLD MERCHANDISE

Title and ownership of all consigned items remains with the consignor until the items are sold or relinquished. Depending on your preference, at the end of the consignment period we will either donate your unsold items or contact you to retrieve any unsold items valued $10 and higher. Unsold items valued $10 and under will not be returned to consignor.

CHANGES

We reserve the right, at any time, to update, revise, supplement, and otherwise modify this Agreement and/or to impose new or additional rules, policies, terms, or conditions (collectively referred to herein as "Additional Terms") as are deemed necessary. All Additional Terms are hereby incorporated into this Agreement by this reference.
